FIRST OFFICIAL GRASSCITY STARCRAFT 2 TOURNAMENT Welcome to the first of hopefully many SC2 tournaments hosted by blades, for blades, here on Grasscity.com For our first tournament, upon considering what we were all looking for in a tournament, and the number of players we could get, we have decided to run a double-elimination tournament. It is explained on the linked wikipedia artical, but also put pretty clearly on our bracket below. Basically what this means is you are not eliminated from the tournament entirely until you lose twice. This way, hopefully the tournament will not be so clear cut, and even if you lose a game you can come back and progress through the bracket. While it should be explained pretty well in the wiki and in our bracket, if you have any questions on the format feel free to ask! A little more about the formatting, all match-ups in our tournament EXCEPT the final game, are going to be played as a BEST OF 3 match. The final game however, for the championship, will be played as a BEST OF 5. RULES Once a time is decided for a match-up, players must lobby up within 20 minutes of that time. If a player is a no show, it counts as a LOSS for the no show, and a WIN for the player who gets stood up. Now I understand we're all adults and have responsibilities, but when deciding on a time PLEASE make EVERY EFFORT to show up so we can run a successful tournament! Results are to be reported ASAP from the completion of a match-up, so I can try to keep the bracket as up to date as possible. Please be honest, be a good sport if you lost, as it is easy for the scores to be truthfully reported and if you lie you will look like a dick to everybody. I doubt anyone will try and falsify the results in a community like this, but if there is any disputes then a screenshot or a link to the game will need to be sent to atari or NowIsB In the case of a disconnection (time out, lag out), the game is to be repeated, unless there is some reason to believe it was done on purpose. Again, please bring any disputes to the attention of myself or NowIsB.
